Ingredients

  • 4 large bone in center cut rib or loin pork chops

For the marinade

  • ½ cup red wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp rosemary
  • 1 ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp black pepper

For the glaze

  • 1 ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp sugar

Instructions

For the glaze

  • Bring 1 ½ cups of balsamic vinegar and 3 Tbsp sugar to a boil, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves.
  • Turn heat to low and cook the glaze stirring occasionally until the glaze sticks to the back of a spoon (about 20-30 minutes) When finished set aside and move on to grilling the pork chops.

Pork chop marinade and grilling instructions

  • Chop 2 Tbsp of fresh rosemary leaves. To make the marinade, whisk together 2 Tbsp rosemary, 1 tsp Dijon mustard, 11/2 tsp kosher salt, ½ tsp black pepper, ½ tsp garlic powder, ½ cup red wine vinegar and ½ cup olive oil.
  • Marinate the pork chops for minimum 2 hours (up to 12) in the refrigerator.
  • Remove the chops from the fridge 30 minutes prior to grilling. Heat a gas grill to medium high heat and lightly oil grates. Pat the chops dry with a paper towel.
  • Sear the pork chops for approximately 4 minutes per side until the chops achieve an internal temperature of 145f.
  • Lightly tent the chops with foil and let rest for 5 minutes. Drizzle the balsamic glaze on top if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Pork type - Thick cut bone in rib or loin pork chops are recommended.
  • Marinade time - Marinate the chops for a minimum of 2 hours (up to 12).
  • Grill - The recipe was made with a gas grill and grilled over direct heat.  All grills are different.  For a precisely cooked pork chop, use an instant read digital thermometer and cook to an internal temp of 145f for medium-rare.
  • Getting a good sear - Pat dry the chops with paper towels prior to grilling.  The chops will sear more quickly when dry.
  • Finishing - Tent chops with foil to seal in the juices and either enjoy the chops as is or use the optional balsamic glaze.
